Sunday evening = solitary sewing = absolute heaven!
I sliced up and sewed together a bunch of fabrics that have been waiting a while. In fact, I tamed them slightly in the end.
When I started out with my rotary cutter I was supremely confidant that I was putting all the right fabrics together.
About half way through, when they were on the design wall, I was completely and utterly convinced it was going to be one of the biggest patchwork and quilting disasters humankind has ever seen.
I continued on, partly because I thought I should at least try to have the courage of my convictions, but partly because the impending train wreck involved some of my favourite fabrics. Painful and expensive!!
The only thing is, (come close and I'll whisper). I used fat quarters, so there's a join down the middle! The perfectionist in me is slightly irritated by this, and wishes I'd ordered long quarters in the first place, but I think I've done a pretty good job of matching and fussy cutting. And when you see who this quilt is for in a couple of months (and no, I'm not having a baby), I'm sure you will agree that it doesn't matter at all!
p.s. I'm partying here, here, here and here!
